This residence in Summerland began as a project to clean up a neglected property. The owner had a handicap that did not allow her to walk easily from her home to outside and this became the guiding factor for how we redesigned the garden and hardscape. and though it was challenging, it was very rewarding. The entire property is now designed for ease of walking throughout and every step is a maximum of 3” high. The existing drainage field became a staircase with a natural slope and a handrail to aide in safety.
Every plant was carefully chosen for color and fragrance. The final outcome was a beautiful amalgamation of rugged rock walls, a field of Lavender, a rose garden, a Petanque Court, and a hedge of Pittosporum and Osmanthus. Other plants include Olive trees, a Melaleuca tree, vines of Burmese Honeysuckle and Cup of Gold, and a grouping of Kangaroo Paw.
